All is not quite what it seems at times in Clough Williams-Ellis' charming village. Meander slowly through ornate buildings, formal gardens & ponds, browse in shops, wander down to the estuary. Time passes by as you relax in another world. Not to be missed.

Thoroughly enjoyable few hours spent meandering through this village. Amazing to see the vision of its designer Sir Clough Williams-Ellis ,through the architecture, some of which was donated from buildings which would otherwise have been demolished and lost.Started with a short guided tour which gave a brief history , then moved on to the land train trip through the woodland path.After that it was just a leisurely stroll to see everything else.Had a lovely lunch at the Caffi Glas .

Even a second visit was worthwhile and we would go again. A lovely little village with lots of walks and things for children of all ages to find interesting. The road train and walk around the headland/beach are to be recommended. It is not cheap to enter but the ice cream is very good value!

This miniature Italianate village is a fun day out wandering all the little lanes and buildings. Really special if you stay overnight inside the village, you have the whole place to yourself. Photo opportunities abound with so many small gardens, balconies and walks and some sea views.
